Thank you to everyone for your positive comments. I'm glad I could help save time & money! I'm still learning here, and other articles / how-to threads have helped me immensely, I'm just trying to give back. I liked writing this "How To", even though the pics and writeup took way longer than the headlight install itself.

I'm beginning to do more maintenance things to my Envoy, and I'm capable of at least documenting them as I go. I'll try and add more write-ups for "the little things" for you guys.

You ROCK - thanks. My bi-focals could not see the solution to the puzzle.

Great write-up - Thanks ! I have a 2004 trailblazer, and I took the airbox out (about 2 minutes) rather than the grill and that worked great for me on the passenger side low-beam. I was able to change the drivers side low beam without removing anything.

Hello McFly,

Great article with detailed pics; hoping someone would do the same for the TBs. Today, I spent about 2 hours and gave up, as I was not interested in removing the front grill. It turns out of course, I have no choice in the matter. Again, some GM engineer needs to give his head a shake. Itís a silly light bulb, I shouldnít have to dismantle the front end. There was just no room or enough move play to remove the rubber caps, let alone get at the socket. The next warm, non raining afternoon, I will attempt the grill removal and once all open I will replace the both.

Regards, CCI_TBLT

Hello Everyone,

OK I will stop my belly aching about the grill removal for the head light fix. Since I also am interested in repairing the flakey bow tie, it will be useful to remove the grill, and kill three birds with one stone. Have a look at this fellow member YouTube video:

Here he shows us how to install HIDís but this is quite useful for just any general front exterior repairs on the TB. Thank you, frankrizzo442, when I have time I will check out you other postings.

Regards, CCI_TBLT

Always helpful

This is really a great reference, epecially if you do not replace the bulbs often to refresh the memory on how to do this! Thanks again.
